A Low Maintenance Succulent Border

Plant Combinations, Spring Borders, Summer Borders, Fall Borders, Winter Borders


Awash with color and shapes, this warm and eye-catching succulent garden is a real delight year round. Blue-gray Agave attenuata, Agave 'Blue Glow' and Senecio mandraliscae (Blue Chalk Stick) nicely complement the sunset hue of Euphorbia tirucalli 'Sticks on Fire' (Fire Sticks), the copper tones of Sedum nussbaumerianum (Stonecrop) and the orange highlights of Carex testacea (New Zealand Hair Sedge). Moreover, the crisp symmetry of the agaves also contrasts with the loose look of both the senecio and euphorbia and the cascading mounds of arching leaves of Carex testacea (New Zealand Hair Sedge).
